From Steep City Teas

This is a beautiful black tea from the Yunnan province in China. It is extremely rich in flavor with hints of honey sweetness, it is bold with a delicious molasses like flavor. Our Yunnan King consists of only golden tips of the tea plant making it a very unique and desirable black tea. We think it is exceptional and a great beginning tea for those interested in exploring the traditional teas. You can easily get multiple steeps out of this tea.

Steep at: 212 degrees for 3-4 minutes.

How am I the first to review a YUNNAN tea from Steep City? Yunnans are so good! Steep City is so good! The dry leaves smell peppery, but they also have a fragrance that reminds me of pizza for some reason! I love the gold and brown mix of color in the leaves. After a four minute steep, I get a malty, chocolatey, slightly peppery, sweet, honey, slightly molasses like, DELICIOUS cup. I love the complexity of all the notes, how you can pick out all of those yummy notes. It tastes a bit light and a bit dark at the same time, if that makes sense. It’s like the honey notes match the gold leaves of the tea! Yunnan teas are one of my favorite types, and this one definitely proves why. I’d call this the ‘Yunnan flavor profile’. It’s a nice example of Yunnan for beginners, or for those who already love Yunnan that want another good one. The second steep was just as delicious and I probably should have went for a third. This is the sixth tea I’ve tried from them and I can say I would definitely order full ounces of all six of them. If these six are any indication, you can’t really go wrong with Steepcityteas.com!

ditto. This tea sounds fantastic! My Steepcity shopping list just keeps getting bigger and bigger, and I’ve already ordered from them twice!

Thanks guys! Glad you liked this tea. Our Yunnan is, to us, a very high quality steep. We are surprised more people haven’t tried it, but hopefully they will!
